Duomo di Modena (Modena Cathedral) is a beautiful cathedral in Modena, Italy. It was built on the site where two churches from the 5th century used to be, an event that will never be lost in Modena's history.
In 1099, Saint Geminianus' burial site was discovered in the area. Being the old city's patron saint, the event prompted the erection of the present church. The cathedral was consecrated in the year 1184 and has had such a long history that it became a World Heritage Site.
Now the seat of the Archdiocese, the church still exhibits the saint's remains in its crypt.
